I remember them well. Here's a different one I've had for several years. (pic)

Made of plastic, the Blue Bird No. 1 came from the Blue Bird gift shop on their web site. It is marked on the underside as
JIMSON NO. 380 HONG KONG.

However, Blue Bird has since gone under new management/ ownership and I can find no trace of such a gift shop now. Happy hunting!


Here it is alongside a recent 1:43 product for comparison.

(later) Found it! The old Blue Bird No. 1 is now with the Henry Ford Museum.
